Sensors for Blast Measurements

Shock Accelerometers: Our shock accelerometers represent state-ofthe-art industry technology for miniature, high amplitude, DC response acceleration sensors, capable of measuring long duration transient motion,
as well as responding to and surviving extremely fast rise times typical of
a High-G shock event. Both a packaged and an OEM configuration are offered to fulfill a variety of installation requirements.
Pressure Sensors: Our pressure sensors are designed for a broad range
of explosion, blast, and shock wave testing. They are frequency tailored
to capture both peak pressure and total impulse measurements. Applications include measuring air-blast pressure in free-field or closed bunker
arenas to obtain peak pressure, total impulse, shock wave and time-ofarrival measurements often used to study blast effects on structures, vehicles, or other objects.

High-G Shock Accelerometers

MEMS High-G
Shock Accelerometers

Four-wire Full Bridge

Highlights:

MEMS high-amplitude shock accelerometers, from PCB Piezotronics


(PCB), represent state-of-the-art industry technology for miniature, high
amplitude, DC response acceleration sensors, capable of measuring long
duration transient motion, as well as, responding to and surviving
extremely fast rise times, typical of a High-G shock event. Both a packaged
and an OEM configuration are offered, to fulfill a variety of installation
requirements.
The air-damped acceleration sensing element, which is micromachined
from silicon, is manufactured with the latest advances in etching techniques
and equipment. This tiny element measures just 2.5 x 1.7 x 0.9 mm (L x W
x H), and incorporates a seismic mass, protective over-range stops, and a
full-active, piezoresistive Wheatstone bridge.
These Series are intended to fulfill the most demanding aerospace, industrial, and commercial application requirements. Their design concepts were
born from more than 20 years of PCB expertise in very High-G shock (
20,000 G) measurement applications and sensor development. Our design
team has the most experience in the world for these applications. Our
process engineers utilized the latest and most sophisticated techniques
and equipment to achieve the desired performance levels that previously
have not been attainable.

High Amplitude ICP Accelerometers

Series 350

High Amplitude ICP Shock Accelerometers

Shock accelerometers are specifically designed to withstand and


measure extreme, high amplitude, short-duration, transient accelerations. Such accelerations characteristically exceed the 1000 g boundary imposed on other typical
accelerometer designs. Shock acceleration events may reach 100,000 g or more
with pulse durations of less than 10 microseconds. The extremely fast transient
and volatile nature of a shock event imposes special demands on the design.
PCB shock accelerometers represent extensive research in materials, assembly
techniques, and testing techniques to insure survivability and faithful representation of the shock event. PCB invested in an automated Hopkinson Bar Calibration
Station to evaluate shock sensor performance by simulating actual, high amplitude
measurement conditions. This allows PCB to assess and improve upon individual
sensor characteristics, such as zero shift, ringing and non-linearity.

Pressure Products for Blast Testing

Measuring Explosions
and Propellant Burns

Applications:
I

Pressure sensors with quartz, ceramic and tourmaline sensing elements are
used for a wide variety of shock wave, blast and explosive testing. Typical applications include measurement of shock and blast waves, combustion or detonation in closed bombs, projectile velocity, free field or underwater explosive
testing and squib lot acceptance testing. All of these applications require high
frequency response and durability, ability to drive long cables and operate in
adverse environments.

Wave Velocity and/or Time-of-arrival Determinations
Explosive Component (e.g., Squib) Lot Acceptance

In applications involving long input cables to data acquisition systems, care


must be exercised to assure the measurement system has adequate frequency
response. Capacitance associated with the long cables can act as a low pass
filter. Sensor output voltage, cable capacitance and constant current are factors to be considered. More current is required to drive higher voltages over
longer cables. PCB signal conditioners can be easily field-adjusted to provide
up to 20 mA to drive long cables. Selecting a sensor to provide about 1 V full
scale for the expected pressure to be measured, rather than 5V, will provide 5
times greater frequency response for a given current and cable length.
Most of the sensors listed in this section incorporate integral electronics and
acceleration-compensating sensing elements, which provide a frequency-tailored, non-resonant response. Frequency tailored sensors have microsecond
rise time and suppressed resonance to faithfully follow shock wave events
without the characteristic ringing common in other sensors.

Models
106B52 & 106B50

Model 106B

Model 106B and 106B50 are high sensitivity, acceleration-compensated, ICP quartz pressure sensors suitable
for measuring intense acoustic phenomena. In fact, the
series is widely used for measuring acoustic fields in operating launch vehicles and their associated payloads.
The Series 106 family range spans from acoustic pressures of less than 80 dB to several psi. Similar piezoelectric technology is employed in PCBs complete range
of hermetically sealed dynamic pressure sensors. These
products measure pressure fluctuations from acoustic
levels to tens of thousands of psi and frequencies from
nearly DC to tens of kilohertz. Their ability to measure
only pressure fluctuations above a specified frequency
imposed on large static pressure fields makes them
uniquely suited for such applications as combustion instability monitoring.

Series 132

Time-of-arrival, ICP Micro-pressure Sensors

High sensitivity micro-pressure sensors are well suited for short wavelength
acoustic and shock wave measurements associated with high-frequency projectile detection systems. Incorporating a 1mm diameter sensing element and
integral microelectronics in a 3mm housing, these sensors have very high sensitivity and microsecond response capable of identifying the bow and stern
wave from a passing projectile. An internal 8 kHz high-pass filter eliminates
low-frequency inputs. Series 132 Microsensors are available in five different
physical configurations to accommodate a wide range of application requirements.
Series 132A30 Microsensors all have a sensitivity of 100 mV/psi and come in
a variety of external configurations to suit your specific application.

Ultra High-frequency Detonation

PCB has supplied high frequency, durable, quartz ballistics pressure sensors in both
charge and ICP voltage mode versions for over forty years. The Series 109 ICP
ballistic pressure sensors are acceleration compensated and have a ceramic coated
integral diaphragm to attenuate thermal shock associated with burning propellants.
This series also features a floating clamp nut that reduces strain sensitivity on the
sensor body due to mounting torque. The ICP integral electronics are protected from
shock such as that found in gun test applications. Series 119 charge output versions
are also available.
In the early 1970s PCB worked with members of the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI) to develop an accurate, durable, standard test
method for sporting arms ammunition. Pressure sensors suitable for implementation
into a standardized test method for rapid-fire production testing of ammunition were
required. This method involved a sensor with a machined curved diaphragm that
measures pressure directly through the shell case. Based on this success, the conformal sensor became a SAAMI/ANSI National Standard for ammunition testing.
Series 117B conformal pressure sensors measure true gun chamber pressure directly
through an unmodified shell case. Since the sensor diaphragm is machined to conform flush to the specific chamber diameter, the measurement process is not altered
or changed in any way. There are no cartridges to be drilled or troublesome gas passages to be cleaned when using the conformal method. Conformal sensors have
proven to be rugged, stable instruments, lasting thousands of rounds. Since the same
sensor may outlast the life of many barrels, it is possible to start and finish ammunition batch qualification testing without experiencing sensor failure during the test.
Keeping with our tradition, PCB continues to offer a complete line of sensors for conformal and case mouth ballistic measurements. All PCB sensors are provided with
NIST traceable calibration. For pre-calibration stabilization purposes, all ballistic pressure sensors are hydraulically cycled at high pressures and most are test fired in the
PCB ballistic firing range. PCB also offers a high pressure static calibration system,
Model 905C, for on-site use in ballistic labs. Side-by-side dynamic/static comparison
calibration services are offered for PCB and competitors ballistic sensors.

ICP Ballistic Sensors

PCB offers a complete line of high pressure ballistic sensors with integral electronics. They operate from a PCB constant-current signal conditioner and provide a high-voltage, low-impedance output. ICP sensors
are well suited for applications involving long cables and operation in
dirty factory or field environments.
These sensors incorporate a captivated floating clamp nut and a more
stable structure for improved accuracy, reliability, and lower thermal transient sensitivity. They are structured with quartz sensing elements, builtin microelectronics, and an integral machined ceramic-coated diaphragm
for greater durability, overrange capability, high-frequency response, and
improved linearity.
Models 109C11 and 109C12 are acceleration-compensated ICP sensors
for high-energy, high-frequency applications, such as detonation, closed
bomb combustion and explosive blast measurements under extreme
shock conditions.

Charge Mode Ballistic Sensors

Charge Mode Pressure Sensors are well suited for high-pressure


ballistics, detonation and explosive research and test applications.
These sensors incorporate stable quartz-sensing elements, a durablemachined ceramic-coated integral diaphragm and floating clamp nut.
Models 119B11 and 119B12 are unique, acceleration-compensated, high
resolution ballistic sensors designed for high-pressure, high-energy
ballistics, detonation, and explosive applications under high-shock
conditions, such as those that might be encountered in howitzer and
liquid-propellant weapons. Two dynamic ranges of 80,000 and 100,000

Pressure Products for Ballistic Testing

Series 117B

Charge Mode Conformal Ballistic Sensors

Conformal ballistic sensors measure true gun chamber pressure directly through the cartridge case. The diaphragm of the conformal sensor is contoured to match a specific chamber diameter. An alignment guide and spacers help the user to install the sensor flush
with the gun chamber walls.
The conformal ballistic sensor, when correctly installed, has a proven life expectancy of
hundreds of thousands of rounds, outlasting many test barrels. Rapid-fire testing is possible since there are no cartridges to drill and align, no diaphragm ablatives to apply, and
no gas passages to clean. The conformal sensor does not affect operation of the test barrel, nor change the measurement process.
Developed in cooperation with members of SAAMI to provide an accurate rapid-fire electronic production test method to replace the mechanical copper crusher, the conformal
sensor has experienced 20 years of proven performance.

Conformal calibration through an unfired, unmodified empty cartridge shell case with PCB
Series 090B Calibration Adaptor accounts for the effects of the cartridge case. Output
from the conformal sensor is compatible with any charge amplifier. The PCB Model

Placebo Transducers

Placebo Transducers
A Tool for Data Validation

Placebo Transducers

For any testing in which the environmental operating conditions of a


transducer vary with time and/or location, several requirements must be
fulfilled before measurement uncertainty analysis is justified. Included
among the requirements are good measurement system design practices,
such as adequate low- and high-frequency response and data-sampling
rates, appropriate anti-aliasing filter selection, proper grounding and
shielding and much more.

Every transducer responds to its environment in every way it can.


For example, accelerometer specifications include their response to
thermal, acoustic, strain and radiation stimuli, to name a few. While
accelerometers must have their response to acoustic pressure specified,
pressure transducers must have their response to acceleration specified.
Thus, one transducers desired response becomes anothers undesired
response.

In addition to these requirements, data validation must be performed to


establish that each transducer responds only to the environmental
stimulus for which it is intended. For piezoelectric and piezoresistive
transducers, placebo (IEST-RP-DTE011.1) transducers enable data
validation to be accomplished. The referenced IEST standard defines a
placebo transducer as identical to a live unit in every parameter except
for mechanical sensitivities. The placebo transducer should respond only
to extraneous environmental factors. Ideally, its output would be zero.
Any signal output from it would indicate that signals from the live
transducers could be corrupted.

These undesired responses can cause a change in transducer sensitivity


or can result in additive, spurious signals at the transducers output
attributable to thermoelectric, electromagnetic, triboelectric and other
self-generating noise phenomena. Since the test or instrumentation
engineer has the best understanding of the test environment, he/she
becomes responsible for data validation. The transducer manufacturer
can assist by supplying placebo transducers to support this validation
process.

Model 9525C

Shock Accelerometer Calibration

The PneuShockTM Model 9525C, manufactured by the Modal Shop, a PCB Group Company,
provides shock inputs for accurate and consistent sensitivity calibrations at high acceleration
levels. Shocks are created at accelerations from 20 g to 10,000 g using a pneumatically
operated projectile to strike an anvil and excite the sensor. By controlling both the level and the
duration of the air pressure applied, the user gains greater control and consistency of the
impacts. The system can be used manually in stand-alone mode or fully computer-controlled.
PneuShock works by pneumatically forcing a projectile to impact an anvil to which the sensor
under test and the back-to-back reference accelerometer are mounted. Pressure is regulated
either manually via a precision pressure regulator or optionally via an electrically controlled
regulator that allows remote control of the pressure. When the impact occurs, the anvil lifts off
a rubber mount, flies a short distance, and is captured by a cushioned fixture. Desired
accelerations and pulse durations are produced using combinations of five anvils with different
padding material, one optional supplemental mass, and continuously adjustable pressure
settings. PneuShocks electronics are rack mountable and vibration isolated from the shock
exciter. Also, the PneuShock poppet is shock isolated from the structure of the exciter to
prevent false triggering by the poppet action during low level accelerations.

Model 9525C PneuShockTM

PneuShock provides verification and linearity check from 20 g to 10,000 g allowing accurate
calibration of shock accelerometers at amplitude levels used in actual testing.

Specifications

The Model 444A53 is a modular-style signal conditioner that combines a dualmode amplifier module (443B102), a peak voltage monitoring module
(444A152), and an AC power supply module (441A101) into one, integrated
device. The unit connects directly with an ICP or charge output pressure
sensor, normalizes sensor sensitivity and displays peak transient measurement
signals in voltage or pressure units.
Unlike a digitizing peak detector, which is limited in accuracy by the sampling
rate, the 444A152 peak monitoring module captures the true peak voltage of
the transient event. Additionally, the module incorporates a 20 kHz low pass
filter, offers reset capability between events and delivers an analog output
signal to profile the entire pressure event.
This device is ideal for barrel chamber pressure testing, lot testing of
ammunition and cartridge load studies. Two alternative versions (Models
444A51 and 444A52) eliminate the dual mode amplifier module and are
intended for direct connection to ICP pressure sensors, any direct voltage
input, or for existing systems that already utilize a separate charge amplifier.
As with all PCB instrumentation, this equipment is complemented with tollfree applications assistance, 24-hour customer service, and is backed by a norisk policy that guarantees satisfaction or your money refunded.

Impedance Converters and In-line Voltage Follower Amplifiers

matically by the equation V=Q/C where Q is the charge sensitivity of the


sensor in Coulombs and C is the total system capacitance in Farads. The
total system capacitance is the result of the sum of the capacitance of the
sensor, the capacitance of the interconnect cable and the input capacitance
of the voltage amplifier. Choose a voltage follower amplifier with an input
capacitance that provides the sensitivity desired, while keeping the total
output voltage (range x sensitivity) within the 10 volt limit. Voltage follower amplifiers do not invert the polarity of the measurement signal.

Series 402A In-line voltage follower amplifiers, similar to the Series 422E
charge converters, serve to convert charge output sensor signals to lowimpedance voltage signals. They are recommended for applications requiring high frequency response up to 1 MHz, and for applications where
sensor output (pC/unit) exceeds the maximum input range (pC) allowed in
the Series 422E.
The voltage sensitivity, V, of a system including a charge output sensor,
low-noise cable and voltage follower amplifier can be determined mathNon-inverting Voltage Follower Amplifiers and Impedance Converters

Cables & Adaptors


Custom Cable Assemblies
PCB offers many standard cable assemblies, however, in the event that a standard cable assembly will not fulfill the requirements
of the application, the ability to configure a custom cable assembly is offered. Start by ensuring compatibility of the connector
type with the cable type desired from the chart below, and then configure the custom cable model number from the steps on the
previous page.
Cable - Connector Compatibility Matrix
The following table provides compatibility information for cables and cable connectors. A  denotes compatibility of the
connector type shown in the rows going down the table with the cable type of the intersecting column going across the table.

Cables & Adaptors

Multi-conductor Cables
Multi-conductor cables minimize tangles and reduce overall cable costs. They also offer
numerous cable/termination variations to suit a particular transmission requirement, as
well as the ability to consolidate several cables into one.

Patch Panels
Input patch panels serve as a central collection point for
individual sensor cables installed in multi-channel
measurement arrays. The sensor signal paths are then
consolidated and transmission to readout or data
acquisition equipment is accomplished by a single, multiconductor cable.
Output patch panels connect via multi-conductor cables to
the output connectors on high density rack or modular signal
conditioners. The sensor signal paths are then expanded
to individual BNC's for each channel for subsequent
connection to data acquisition equipment.
